Noel McFarlane - Introduction

Noel McFarlane, from Bray, Co. Wicklow, was born on 20 December 1934. He was a forward and played for Bray Wanderers in Ireland. McFarlane crossed the Irish Sea to join Manchester United while still a teenager in April 1952.

Noel McFarlane & Manchester United

Noel McFarlane made his Manchester United debut on 13 February 1954 in a First Division match against Tottenham Hotspur. More than 35,000 fans looked on as United won 2-0 through goals from Jack Rowley and Tommy Taylor. Despite making his first appearance in a winning team this was also Noel McFarlane's last appearance for the Manchester United first team. Despite enjoying FA Youth Cup final success in 1953 McFarlane was an unfortunate victim of the fact that there was a plethora of outstanding young forwards on United's books at the time. Noel McFarlane spent the next couple of years playing in the United reserves. With little prospect of further first team action Noel McFarlane left Manchester United in June 1956 to join Waterford United back in Ireland.
